A Driver’s Guide to New York: Find Parking in NYC

Driving in New York City can be a bear, but parking is even harder. With crowded, expensive lots that are often full by the early hours — and stay full all day — finding a good, safe place to park is stressful.

That’s why we’ve curated a few of the top parking spots in New York’s hottest destination for work and play — Midtown Manhattan.

Find Parking in NYC at These Great Lots

If you need to find parking fast, there are a few go-to lots you can try for parking options in Midtown.

The CBS Building at 31 W. 52nd Street accepts Mobile Pass, but you’ll be tethered to drive-up rates, which are $12.00 for a ½ hour. If you’ve got an SUV or oversized vehicle, there will be a surcharge.

The Grand Central Terminal is convenient to Grand Central Station, but drive-up rates are $25.00 per hour. However, you can make reservations for parking, which can help avoid lot overflows.

As you can see, even if you can find the space, it’s hard to find low-cost, let alone free parking in NYC.
